If your home is due for a design update but you have a limited budget and even less time, you’re in the right place. We thought of home décor ideas to help you start. With something as simple as an accent wall, colorful light bulb, or new throw pillow. Your entire space can feel fresh, on-trend but timeless, and refined. You can tackle each of these decorating ideas in one day. Even though the results will look like it took way longer to pull off.
1. Show Your Powder Room Some Love
It’s easy to overlook a room when it’s super tiny, especially because there simply isn’t enough useable space for décor. But it’s definitely possible and well worth it to show these nooks some love. Take this powder room, for example. With a light blush pink wall color and a surrounding gallery of eclectic artwork, the small room packs a lot of punch.
2. Swap Accents Seasonally
Plaid? For winter? Not even close to groundbreaking, but we’re still here for it. Swapping out accents seasonally will also get you excited for what’s to come.
3. Get Inspired By Nature
This space is rich with texture, which creates warmth and dimension. There’s also plenty of character even though it’s sticking to a strict color palette. For a similarly inviting and grounded environment, get inspired by nature. Think seagrass, rattan, jute, wood, brushed concrete, and marble.
4. Reupholster Your Furinture
Reupholstering your furniture will automatically freshen up an entire space. And if you love eclectic decorating, take notes from this impeccable living room. All the juxtaposition in this room is working so well the angular mirror, vivid orange art, marble fireplace, rustic stool, and geometric pottery are all unexpectedly complemented by the softness of the blush pink chairs.
5. Color-Block Your Wall
For a graphic statement, color-block your wall. Paint half of it a bold color or opt for two neutral tones. Here, black creeps up about a quarter of the way while the rest is a nice shade of steel gray, creating an understated-yet-unique statement.
6. Touch up the Walls
Freshen up a bathroom by giving the walls a fresh coat of white paint. If that sounds like too much of a commitment, use a magic eraser to touch up smudges. It’s bright, refreshing, and the perfect blank backdrop for a fun gallery, as seen in this bathroom designed by Alexander M. Reid.
7. Introduce a New Throw Blanket
Putting a colorful throw blanket at the end of your bed or flung over the sofa is an easy but transformative design trick. It’s also a great way to experiment with colors and prints before fully committing to them.
8. Opt for Statement Art
Make a simple wall a little more exciting with oversized artwork. Choose large-scale photography or something abstract and vibrant to really make a statement.
9. Introduce Contrast
To create interesting contrast, replace one thing in an otherwise totally traditional room with something super modern, like this geometric coffee table and abstract-painted floor.
